Why Okebena v.s. Round? Or Why Round v.s. Okabena? They are the same type of lake, pressure? water clearity ? Number of fish? What?

Round Lake traditionally is a better opening day lake than Okabena is for whatever reason who knows. It's not because of pressure because without a doubt there will be a lot more boats on Round than Okabena guaranteed. Right now the DNR nets had shown Round with a lot more fish per net lift than Okabena even though Okabena still had good numbers and probably a better size average also. Kind of like saying why is Sarah traditonally better than Shetek? It just is.

I'll either be trolling for snot rockets on Lime or jigging for eyes on Sarah.

Do you want the truth? Anything you do on Sarah will get you a nice marble eye! Casting, jiging, trolling, drifting, slip bobbering, but I guarantee you that a Barbie pole, and a Lighting MacQueen pole will catch more than my pole! wink.gif

I'm wondering and pondering between going to Lac Qui Parle or Shetek... Any suggestions on what may be the better choice this year for opener?

      I just finished two more of these 10 rod racks ... one is spoken for but the other is available. If you were thinking of getting one, now would be a great time. I could stain it to your spec and put the final poly finish on it and ship it to you in a couple days. Let me know if you are interested.

      Just went and checked out the lake, it is a slushy mess but I can get anywhere out there on the south west side, and all I have is front wheel drive minivan lol So I'm going to do a little recon on a lake map and pick my spot for the evening bite. Any suggestions on depth for walleyes? 
    • JBMasterAngler
      Nice article. Perhaps the lake trout season should close in February right along with walleyes and pike?
    • HossFisher
      Yeah, saw that too. Rumor has it he was heading towards the river access from Horseshoe. Not smart.
    • Jim Uran
      Nice report! I hope he cleaned the fish for you, lol!
